“Not going to win every game”: Pat Cummins after defeat against RCB

After losing the game against RCB at their home venue, Sunrisers Hyderabad captain Pat Cummins admits “it’s T20 cricket, you are not going to win every game”. 

Sunrisers Hyderabad who scripted numerous records this season were expected to beat the Royal Challengers Bengaluru comfortably in their backyard. But RCB turned the table by defeating SRH by 35 runs and registered their second victory of the season.

Though the victory doesn’t make any changes in RCB’s position in the IPL 2024 Points Table, the win will motivate them to move with confidence for the remainder of the tournament.

After facing a defeat in the home venue, SRH captain Pat Cummins said “Not an ideal night. Few over par with the ball and unfortunately lost a few wickets throughout our innings. We were gonna bat first, it seems to be working for us. Before the last few wins, we were thinking that we were a bowl-first team. Didn’t go our way”.

“(Message to the group) I speak after wins, Dan (Vettori) speaks after losses. The boys have been going really well, it’s T20 cricket, you are not going to win every game. Don’t dwell on this too much”.

(High risk, high reward approach with the bat) I think it’s our strong suit. It’s not going to work every game. One or two games where it hasn’t gone our way at the start, we still managed to get a good total. Still think this is the way forward for our boys”, he added.

With 5 victories in their first 8 games, SRH placed in third position in the IPL 2024 points table. Sunrisers Hyderabad will play their next game of the season against Chennai Super Kings on April 28 in MA Chidambaram Stadium, Chennai.
